    With the transition to online classes due to COVID-19, the professors were given the week of Spring break to switch their entire class to an online format. Without exception, the transition was smooth for all 5 of my previously in-person classes, including my senior research seminar and my independent study. Not all of the professors were as proficient in the technology, but all of them did their best to not let their own struggles interfere with our educations.

    Although online learning was a challenging adjustment, I have found that professors are easy to communicate with. Online coursework is not overwhelming and expectations of students are clear from the start of the course. Professors are encouraging and available to help with any problems I come across.
    I took straightforward online and hybrid classes for the pandemic, and also had classes via zoom during it. Communication and expectations have always been very clear, the technology used is straightforward and my experience has been good for sure.
